of Science degree in
Applied Marine Physics
University of Miami
School of Marine and Atmospheric Science
in 1991. Over the course of his career at AOML, Paul has been
instrumental in advancement of acoustic backscatter techniques
in a variety of applications ranging from wastewater outfall
plume characterization to dredge material placement monitoring.
Paul has had experience in all aspects of project development
from project coordination, through execution of operations at
sea, to final data processing, analysis and presentation.
to 1991 he served as Chief Scientist of the Southeast Florida
Outfall Experiments (SEFLOE I & SEFLOE II). In 1993-94 he

Real-Time Current Measurement
used to monitor the disposal
of dredge material during the Port of Miami expansion project.
He implemented the conversion of backscatter data collection
from analog to digital methods. He
is now working with colleagues on the Florida Area Coastal Environment (FACE) while preparing for retirement in the near future.
